Update

To clarify my position, I’ve added the following to the “About this blog” page:

For some, faith in a god can be a source of private happiness—and a mechanism that provides easy answers to life’s difficult questions. A society does not need faith to flourish, but as long as any irrational belief takes an internal, non-authoritarian framework, the faithful should be left alone in their choice. But when this faith takes a public, invasive form, it should be suppressed with an equal and opposite reaction from the cumulative voices of reason. Without the voice of reason, society is doomed to follow one brutish form of belief after another.
